I believe you will need a newer firmware to do WPA. v1.4.9 is good for
WEP, but we found that for WPA v1.7.4 was required. A useful link is
http://linux.junsun.net/intersil-prism/ which contains instructions on
how to upgrade your firmware and links to the firmware itself. In the
past I have found many problems are alleviated by upgrading the
firmware, whether WPA was required or not.
